2015 was a pretty good year in SCV Real Estate! Lowered interest rates
contributed to a ten percent increase in home sales over 2014’s
numbers, with the average price of homes increasing by roughly five percent.
While real estate experts have been saying over the past three years that
interest rates are likely to rise to five percent, they have remained
constant around the four percent mark for quite some time now. Despite
pressure on rising interest rates, international turmoil and politics
have made US bonds an attractive option for investors, which has in turn
kept interest rates down.
Recent Market Trends
In SCV, the average values of homes appreciated at their lowest levels
since 2011, indicating that home prices may be starting to decline. When
considering last year’s boost in sales, it is clear that demand
is still strong and there are still interested buyers. The market now
faces a shortage buyers who are able to afford homes, resulting in a downward
pressure on home values. This downward force is countered by a low supply
of available homes for sale, thereby creating an opposite upward pressure
on local home values.
